- Provide free, confidential memory screenings to those with memory concerns or who want to check their memory
- Eliminate the stigma and fear associated with dementia
- Encourage those with memory concerns to follow up with an exam by a physician or other qualified healthcare professional for an accurate diagnosis, treatment, social services and community resources
- Educate the public about Alzheimer’s disease and successful aging
- Alleviate the fears of those who do not have a problem
- Provide information about the education and support services available through Alzheimer’s Services of the Capital Area
